Former Ashanti Regional Youth Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Brogya Genfi wants President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo blamed for the current predicament of Ghanaians as far as the increasing cases of coronavirus is concerned.
Ghana as at April 3, 2020 recorded 205 confirmed cases of
the deadly virus with the latest being a resident of the Upper East Region.
According to the Ghana Health Service, this particular case neither
has travel history nor has come into contact with any patient but tested
positive for the deadly virus
The Greater Accra Region has most cases (183) followed by the
Northern Region (10), Ashanti Region (9), Upper West Region (1), Eastern Region
(1) and Upper East Region (1) with death toll at 5
But the former NDC executive disclosed that all these could
have been averted especially in the case of the imported cases if the President
had heeded to advise and shut the country’s borders as of March 1, 2020.
In his view, less resources would also have been allocated in
quarantining travellers than the about $7million his government is
“President Akufo-Addo should be held responsible for all the
pain we are going through as a country today. The right time to have closed our
borders was before 1st March 2020. Unfortunately, he, with a large entourage
was on a needless tour of Europe and other countries which had already
confirmed positive cases. Ghana would have spent less in the quarantine of
travellers than the $7million his government is currently expending searching
for these travellers and contact tracing… His government must be ultimately
held responsible for our predicaments. #StopTheSpread”, he said in a post
